Martin and Rosaline were a pleasure to work with! We are very happy that we chose Butterfly photography for our engagement and wedding photos.
The first time we met with Martin, he was great answering all our questions, giving suggestions and was always available to answer any questions we had.
We met him and Rosaline for our engagement photo shoot and they were great at scoping the area and choosing the best places for photos.
We got married almost a month ago and we already received the photos! They all turned out beautiful and we are very happy with them!
We chose to get a photography package that includes an album. We have to choose 40 photos for it but it'll be hard to do because we like too many photos, which is a great problem to have.
We also used their photo booth service, which our guests loved and had lots of fun with and my husband and I did too. It was a great compliment to the photography service they offer and a great and meaningful favour for our guests.
We would definitely recommend Butterfly photography.

Martin provided photography for our engagement and wedding celebrations. He was always quick to reply to our enquiries and kindly offered us many location suggestions as my wife and I are from out of town. He was a pleasure to work with and made our photo shoots enjoyable and fun. His enthusiasm is a delight! He was full of ideas on making the best of our photo locations and was very patient with us. Unfortunately it rained during our wedding day, but Martin never complained once and was always eager and smiling despite getting very wet! I would highly recommend him for any photo session.

We did a lot of research before chosing a photographer for our wedding, and we chose Butterfly Photography after reading all the positive reviews and after my initial conversation with Martin, we decided he would be a "fit" for us. We were not disappointed!
We first met him during our engagment session, which was loads of fun, and the photos were excellent! After seeing them, we were so excited to see what he would capture on our special day.
Unfortunately it was raining on our day, but Martin is so talented and creative, that he was able to do all of our shots indoors and they are all amazing! Better than I could have imagined, with so many unique set-ups.
From start to finish, Martin was professional, fun and interacted so well with our guests!
We will be telling everyone we know about his work and highly recommend him.
Thank you so much Martin for being such a large part of what turned out to be a perfect day!

Martin did an incredible job with our wedding photos. We were on a tight schedule and only had about 90 mins to do all our portrait shots between the ceremony and reception. Martin was a true pro and worked quickly and efficiently and even now when we look at our photos we can't believe how much variety he was able to provide in our shots in our short time. Friends and family always "When did you take these??" since they can't believe how many sites we were able to visit in 90 mins! He was a pleasure to be around all day and we love every shot. We also had Butterfly photography supply us with a photobooth which of course was a huge hit. Thank you so much for capturing our special day and doing such a phenomenal job. We'd recommend Butterfly Photography to anyone!

Martin from Butterfly Photography was very professional and lighthearted throughout our wedding day and engagement shoot. He was so quick to response to all of my emails and was incredibly accommodating to my MANY requests for photos.
He made the photography so much fun with his humor and was great at directing and giving ideas on photos.
The photos came out absolutely perfect, and were exactly how I had pictured our wedding photos to be. I would highly recommend Martin for his photography skills and not to mention Butterfly Photography is very budget friendly for that budget conscious bride who won't have to sacrifice quality.

The photo booth was also a MASSIVE hit at our wedding, we couldn't keep the guests out of it! A must have at any event.

Thanks again Martin!

When we first started looking for a photographer we didn't really know what we were looking for. We looked into the photographer from her sisters wedding but he was way to over priced for the quality we saw. We came across Martin and Butterfly Photography on the internet and I have no doubt in my mind that we made the best choice!! Martin was amazing at getting back to emails very quickly and had no problem answering the many barrage of questions I am sure I laid on him. Our engagement shoot had to keep getting post poned do to weather and other events and he was always accomodating. His humor during the shoot will always stick in our minds and the quality of the pictures came back and blew us away!! During the actual wedding and bridal party picture sets we could hear everyone saying how great he is and how funny he is!! Martin put Lindsay and I at ease and neither one of us ever had to worry one bit about our pictures. I also have to thank Martin for reffering Erica from White Dahlia Weddings to be our planner. With those two in our corner we had people saying that this was one of the best wedding they had ever been to. If you picck Martin and Butterfly Photography to do your wedding you can take peace of mind knowing he will capture everything and give you what you want. Amazing photographer, amazing person, and I am happy to call him an amazing friend!!

Thank you so much Martin

Also if you get the chance get the photobooth!! Biggest hit at the wedding and everyone loves the props!!

We got married on September 1st. We were to meet Martin for the first time at the ceremony. He managed to capture some photos before we were even there that were a surprise and so fitting for who we are. I (the bride) met Martin as I was coming down the isle. We had talked extensively thru email and we were confident in Martin's abilities. He came highly recommended fro a friend of ours. Martin was professional, courteous and sincere. Even though his camera equipment got stolen at the end of our ceremony, he maintained a professional approach to the whole situation. He managed to capture our love and happiness of the day we were sharing. We received our photos in a timely manner and LOVE them. We eagerly await the next set of photographs from our make-up session with Martin at the location we missed out on after the theft took place. We would highly recommend Butterfly Photography to anyone who is looking for a super cool, easy to work with photographer!

Martin, of Butterfly Photography, was friendly, courteous, and professional. During the planning stage and on our wedding day, he advised us on several things, which helped our busy day run smoothly. Because of his creativity and experience, he caught every moment that we could have ever wanted and more!
When our reception had deviated off the timeline, Martin ensured we got back on it, so that he would be able to capture every special moment. For that, we are very grateful!
Martin delivered our photos when he promised and we love every one!
Thank you so much for all your hard work. And thanks for the laughs!

Pre-Wedding photos (for 1 hour):

Martin is friendly. Quick response to emails, on time and very efficient! It is amazing that we have received the DVD within 2 weeks.
Did mention to Martin that we were not satisfied with the photos. We weren't trying to take any advantage. Contract was signed and payment was made. All we worried about was that he would also be our photographer on the wedding day. Normally, getting married happens once in a life, having a good photographer is very important. Martin was confident with his products and replied for sure at least we would like some of the photos.
Suppose we planned to choose one photo from the pre-wedding session to display on our wedding day, however, we ended up had to use the one we took it ourselves with a tripod.



Wedding photography (for 2.5 hours):

Martin was on time and confident! He managed to capture all the special moments. We received the DVD within 2 weeks after the wedding day.
We were quite embarrassed that there were 5 guests complained about Martin's impolite attitude in person on the wedding day. 1 guest among the 5 told us not to pay him. 2 guests among the 5 were upset about Martin having arguments with my aunt who always taking photos in front of him. We understand that was very frustrated. However, if Martin did let us know instead of having arguments in front of our guests, and did give us the opportunity to deal with her, he won’t be considered rude, at least for this issue. How and what he talked to my aunt was very rude indeed. We feel very sorry that my aunt flew all the way to Canada for this. Very bad experience.
P.S. friends & relatives are shocked that we paid a professional for those photos. Photos from my aunt, who is not professional, are much more better and can see she took them with her heart.

Butterfly Photography and Photo Booth Rentals responded with the following comments:

Hi Carol,

I apologize that my attitude came across the wrong way at your wedding and that you were unhappy with the quality of the photos. I went through your photos several times and the photos are to my standards and are consistent in quality for both your pre-wedding photos and for your wedding photos.

After you received your pre-wedding photos, I asked you what you would like me to do differently for your wedding photos to ensure that you will have photos you love. I did not receive a response from you with your photography preferences. That was unfortunate as I would have tailored my approach to accommodate what you wanted for your wedding photos.

I am sorry a few of your guests found the way I talked to your relative was inappropriate. When I arrived to the ceremony site, I noticed a guest with professional camera gear on her and was busy taking a lot of photos of the ceremony site. I introduce myself as the photographer hired to photograph your wedding. We had a friendly conversation and I explained that I was the designated photographer for the wedding and that all guests will need to remain seated during the wedding. She smiled and agreed.

Before the ceremony started, I also asked the minister to make an announcement asking guests to remain seated during the ceremony. Unfortunately, the minister had forgotten to make this announcement.

When the ceremony began, the guest immediately got up and started photographing alongside me and even in front of me. As you can imagine this is very disruptive to a professional photographer. I then tapped her on the shoulder and politely asked her to sit down as she was in my photos. She said no and continued going around the ceremony site taking photos and getting in front of my shots. I then asked her a second time to kindly please sit down because she was in the photos. She still continued to photograph the entire ceremony.

I take my job as a professional photographer very seriously. I work very hard to ensure that my obligations as a professional wedding photographer are met. I asked the guest to sit down so that I could get a greater variety of angles during the ceremony. I did not raise my voice nor was disrespectful to her. I worked extremely hard to get nice photos of your ceremony without her in the frame.

Nonetheless, I am happy that you found me to be friendly, confident, and responsive. I worked lates nights to ensure to ensure that you received in a timely manner.

Sincere regards,

Martin

Matin was absolutely Amazing! Since the beginning he answered all our questions promptly and gave us some ideas and helped us decide on our photo shoot location for the wedding day.
On the day of the wedding he arrived on time, confident and with a big smile on his face. I could see and feel that he knows what he is doing, and that made me trust him and be calmer through the whole process.
He was supper friendly and patient. My Mom loved the way he was handling everything and kept telling me that we made the right choice of choosing him.

We took pictures in three different locations, but with his time management we didn’t feel rush at all and enjoyed every moment of our time taking pictures. He gave great directions and took amazing photos.

In time for the family Pictures there was a situation that an emotional guest could have turned the wedding into unpleasant seen, but Martin acted very professional and handled the situation very well. Our guest later was telling us that she actually liked our photographer and he is such a friendly and polite person.

Despite the busy time of summer bride season, we received the photos less than three weeks and we liked them.

Overall we had the pleasure of having him capturing the best day of our life, and we feel so lucky that we have hired him. He is friendly, supper talented and great photographer. We would recommend him to anyone!!

I had been looking for a specific type of photographer for weeks and was beginning to get frustrated when a friend referred me to Butterfly Photography. It was EXACTLY the image I was looking for. We met with Martin a few days later and both my husband and I thought he'd be perfect to include in our special day. Martin was so quick to respond every time I emailed and very accommodating to any changes I requested. He was very reasonably priced and his website impressed me immediately. On the day of our wedding Martin was professional yet we had SUCH a fun time with him. He made the whole process very easy and made sure to keep us on track throughout the day. He had a good eye for some gorgeous shots and also asked the groom and I what other types of photos we wanted to ensure we were happy with the end result. Sure enough, as expected.. I loved the finish product! Not only did he take LESS THAN A WEEK to get ALL 900 photos back to me, but I loved every single one. I highly recommend Butterfly Photography!
We can't thank you enough, Martin!

Martin was quick to respond to emails and very friendly. We had a lot of photos to take in not very much time, but Martin got the job done! He is very time oriented and reliable. He took some great photos, and did exactly what I asked him to do, even though I was vague. He was also incredibly quick to get the photos back! He had photos online for us in under 2 weeks, and the DVD was at our place in less than 3! I was super impressed!

I found Martin a pleasure to work with , he put me at ease on my wedding day! My biggest fear was that I was going to know that there was a photographer there but I didn't even notice him in the background :) Also I did a lot of research on prices and they were extremely reasonable . I would highly recommend them for anyone.

We originally contacted Butterfly Photography because of their amazing prices, and now having worked with Rosaline I can say that it would have been worth paying much more. I am so impressed at the quality of service and photos we received, especially since some photographers we considered would have charged at least 2-3 times more.

Leading up to the wedding, Rosaline was always quick to respond to emails and willing to offer lots of advice. She helped us choose our locations and plan our schedule for the day, reassured us with a backup plan for potentially bad weather, and was very flexible with all of the planning.

On the wedding day, Rosaline arrived early and was very organized and efficient. She started snapping pictures immediately. We flew through dozens of family photos before the ceremony and had plenty of time to visit a few locations in Stanley Park for bride and groom portraits. Everyone was thrilled that she was so organized and great at giving directions, so we weren't left standing around or wondering what to do.

At the wedding, our guests all thought Rosaline was very friendly and personable. Several people mentioned how professional she was, and that even when answering questions or talking to guests, she seemed to be continuously taking pictures all night, which is amazing considering she worked with us for eight hours. She managed to capture all the important moments, plus a lot of extras, and make them all look good.

Both our engagement and wedding photos look amazing, and we got them back very quickly. We have many beautiful photos to remember our wedding day, and it's impossible to tell that we got them for such a low price! The entire process of working with Rosaline was a pleasure, and we would happily recommend her and Butterfly Photography to anyone looking for a photographer.

Professional. Efficient. Patient. Thorough. These are just some adjectives I would use to describe Martin from Butterfly Photography. He was heaven sent and booking him was the best decision I made after marrying my best friend. Not only was he attentive to all my questions before the wedding but he exceeded all my expectations when the day finally arrived.

We were running a little behind schedule and knew the window to have everything completed before our reception was going to be rather tight. Martin made sure that we were focused and took plenty of pictures with different backgrounds/effects. He was so on point and made the whole experience so enjoyable.

I also rented a photo booth from Butterfly Photography and to say that it was a success is a complete understatement. Everyone at my wedding raved about how awesome the photos turned out and seeing the constant line-ups at the photo booth; reaffirmed my decision to get one. Definitely money well spent!!!

For any brides searching for a great photographer at a great price, please look no further than Butterfly Photography. I guarantee that it will be worth every single penny!!

Cheers!

I hired Martin to provide the photobooth for my husband's surprise party. From start to finish, Martin's professionalism and customer service exceeded my expectations. Email responses were quick, they showed up on time and they were very friendly to my guests. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my DVD of images just a few days later. I really appreciated everything that they've done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. Btw, Martin is also a talented wedding photographer and you definitely should consider him for your wedding. Thank you for everything.

Martin was absolutely wonderful to deal with! Leading up to the wedding he answered all my emails promptly and helped me to decide when and where to do my pictures on the day of. I knew right away when I met him in person for a quick 'interview' that he was definitely the perfect person to work with on our day.

On the day of, Martin was efficient, and it never felt like he was intruding. In fact, without Martin's gentle steering I'm not sure everything would have happened on time. We left ourselves in his hands when it came to where our portraits should be taken and I am absolutely in awe of some of the photos we ended up getting. My husband who was against spending any money at all on photography said "Worth every penny" the moment he saw our album. In fact there are so many beautiful pictures I'm not sure how we'll ever narrow them down for our album.

As for the monetary end of things the value for his services in unreal. I was quoted some staggering prices by other vendors, so when I got a quote back from Martin I was worried at first. But after looking at his portfolio, knew we'd be in good hands. I have suggested Butterfly Photography to a few friends already and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone thinking of using them for any occassion. I will cherish the pictures that Martin took the rest of my life, and I'll be proud to show them to any future children we have. Thank you Martin!

I don't know where to start with this review! I found Butterfly Photography through google for our wedding in October 2012.  I was a bit hesitant since the pricing was so good and I felt it was "too good to be true". Once I saw their work on their Facebook page, I was amazed and contacted Martin right away with my fingers crossed that he was still available. This was one of the best decisions that I made. Due to my schedule, we never got to meet Martin before the wedding. We did keep in contact quite frequently (his response time is awesome). On our wedding day, we had a few events leading up to us being totally off schedule. Martin was extremely understanding and helpful throughout it all. We got our pictures 3 weeks later and they turned out amazing, including all the candids he took and we aren't even a photogenic couple!  Even my guests had so many nice things to say about him. He does his work so discreetly and isn't pushy like some photographers. 

It is Martin's personality that really makes him different from others. I've dealt with other photographers and I can honestly say that Martin is one of a kind. He is professional, yet so easy going and comfortable to be around, it is almost like he is just a friend taking pictures of us. I plan on using him for all of our special moments in life, his talent just truly captures the love perfectly. 

Don't second guess yourself, this is the photographer you want to hire! While you are at it, get the photo booth! It was a great value and the second best decision I made (next to booking Martin, of course!)

Martin and Rosaline were absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. They were professional, uplifting and kind. The photographs they took look beautiful. I am very happy that I chose Butterfly Photography to capture all the moments of our special day, and I will definitely be using them again in the future to capture other special moments in my life.

When I was searching for a photographer, the title Butterfly Photography caught my attention. When I was looking through his website I was amaze at his work, I was hesitant to call him at first because I thought he was so expensive base on his quality of work. When I saw his pricing I was shocked and I crossed my finger that he would be available for our wedding date. When we first met Martin he was on time, cheerful, made us laugh, and made us very comfortable. When he told me he was going away for vacation I was praying that he'll come back safely because I was totally in love with his work. Eventhough he was away travelling he was so quick at getting back to us. I felt at ease knowing that I could trust him that he'll always be there for his client no matter where he is. I like that he works so hard to give your photos right away, we got our e-shoot and wedding photos within 3wks. We love his work so much that we decided to do 2 e-shoots!!! I love all of our photos and can't stop looking at them. Although the wedding is over, Martin still respond back to us very quickly. Why pay 5,000-10,000 dollars on a photographer when someone like Martin can do a better job! If you're looking for a photographer, make sure you hire him or else you'll regret it!!! Trust me =) If his booked up consider moving your dates! We would! My husband is so happy that I found him, and he said "Hiring him was the best decision that we made!"

Butterfly Photography is the best! Within five minutes of meeting Martin, we knew we wanted to work with him- and booked him on the spot. His personality was a great fit with us, and he is extremely talented at his job (just take a look at their online gallery on their website!). Funny, efficient, flexible, easy to get along with, and queer friendly.

Great prices, excellent results, and short turnaround time post-wedding -- you can't go wrong. Book early! I highly recommend Butterfly Photography. :)

Every time I sent an e-mail out to them, I had a response within a few hours. Plus, when I sent her a couple photos that I wanted to replicate, she took it upon herself to look on my Pinterest page to see the style I wanted.
Plus, these guys are way more affordable than most others out there, and just as good!

We had only Martin come in for our very small wedding and pre-wedding shoot.

From the begining he was friendly and accommodating, gave us an amazing deal to fit our needs and tiny budget, he was also flexible and very punctual in communication, arrival at sites and sending the photos too! Really appreciated that!

He gives good instructions as well as takes direction, and didn't waste a second, very efficient, taking us through the best spots for our location.

Martin did his work discreetly and professionally, especially putting up with a particular guest's...unusual sense of humour ;)

We also appreciated Martins own sense of humor and being able to relate to him on a human level as well as a business one.
Whole hearted recommendation from us!
Thank you Martin!

Our photos from both our engagement session and wedding day were available to us in a very timely manor, we were able to stick exactly to our budget, and many of our guests commented on how wonderful Rosaline was as a photographer. She was personal enough to capture wonderful memories while at the same time being very professional. She was well prepared and gave us great advice for advanced planning for the wedding day.

I would recommend Butterfly to anyone looking for personal, professional, top quality and affordable photography services.

What can I say about Martin, his photography skills, his business sense, and his expertise: FABULOUS, FANTASTIC, FREAKIN' AMAZING (sorry, was trying to think of another "F" word!) Not only did he get the shots I desired, he used his imagination and skills to capture moments I am so happy I will never forget (since we now have photographic proof!) Martin was on time, got all of the shots done fast and was thorough while still having humour and a calmness about him. My husband and I are happy to call Martin and Roselyn our friends and would recommend their skills and insight to anyone!

We loved how he took control and gave us and our wedding party direction as he created some amazing shots, while at the same time he was very open to our suggestions.

He managed to capture every aspect of our wedding and he created some incredible night shots with the city in the background. After posting some of my photos on facebook, I had so many people say that our wedding photos are some of the best they've seen. I highly recommend Butterfly Photography as my husband and I were impressed from start to finish.

My wife and I got married on New Year's Eve 2011/2012. Can't say enough good about Martin. We did both our engagement and wedding photos with him.

There are so many good things about Butterfly Photography. I was getting married Oct 29, 2012 and I found Butterfly photography through Facebook. Through comparison, Butterfly photography was the most responsive, the best deal, creative and accommodating.
Butterfly photography is very quick to respond. At the time, I contacted 3 or 4 photographers and Martin was the only photographer who responded back to me on the same day. Other photographers took a couple of days and 1 took over a week. I was able to talk to Martin on the phone and he was very pleasant and professional. Butterfly gave me the best price for my package. You don’t get married every day, so I wanted the world: full day photographer for our special day, wedding album, and photo booth and engagement photos. Once I received my quotes from all the other photographers, I realized some photographers charged me double for the same package. With Butterfly, I got so much more. Our wedding day was so jammed pack that my husband and I thought that day was a blur. Butterfly photography was able to capture each moment and every candid shot for us to remember. They were creative with their angles, poses and they knew secret places to take good shots. I’m pregnant now and Martin and Rosaline are so accommodating. Although, Butterfly photography does mainly engagement and wedding photos, Martin and Rosaline were accommodating to take our maternity photos. Butterfly photography is not only our photographers for our wedding; they are our photographers for every occasion. My husband and I not only found great photographers but also great friends. I highly recommend their services!

THE BEST photographers in vancouver, by far. Martin & Rosaline from Butterfly Photography were exactly what we were looking for in a photographer for our wedding. We needed something affordable, beautiful, and timeless, and the photo results that we got were amazing.

Rosaline did our wedding photos, and she did a great job! We unfortunately only had about an hour for wedding portraits, and I was worried about it, however she worked it! We had many beautiful shots from our entire day.

Another thing I was VERY impressed with was the amount of time you get your wedding photos back in after the wedding! Alot of my friends had to wait up to 3 months to get their photos back, but Butterfly Photography got them back to me in 3 weeks! They are able to provide amazing, high quality shots, and they were our dream photographers.

We will definately be using them again for other milestones! Babies, family shots, etc, we will be contacting Butterfly Photography first.

Martin and Rosaline definitely went the extra mile to make our wedding as memorable as possible. My wife experienced a serious back injury just before the wedding and Martin and Rosaline were incredibly responsive and were able to accommodate us in many creative ways.

They were very professional and personable; even our guests commented on how good they were. Both my wife and I would recommend them to anyone looking for photography services.

Great job! We wanted a lot of candid shots rather than posed pictures, and we were very happy with the result. Also, we used the photobooth - something all the guests enjoyed. The photobooth came with costumes (something I was skeptical about), but it turned out to be great - and you could tell that all the guests enjoyed putting on the masks, boas, and hats.

We also had our engagement photos done by Butterfly. They had been to the location prior to scout it out, so when it came time to do the shoot there was no wandering around - everything was planned out very efficiently.

I don't know what the 'responsiveness' category means, but we were able to do everything we wanted.

I decided to have a destination wedding from New Orleans, LA. I fell in love with Victoria BC and wanted the city to be the setting for our special day. I searched for photographers to capture the moment, and came across Butterfly Photography. I was very impressed with the sample photos and their style. I was worried that since they were based in Vancouver, I wouldn't be able to use them in Victoria. After conversing over e-mails, I found them to be extremely accommodating! They worked with us and gave us exactly what we wanted. Our photos were beautiful, and every moment that we wanted captured, was. They used the majesty of Victoria as the backdrop to create unique, timeless pictures that we will always treasure. They were very professional and also extremely personable. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting good, quality photography, and to anyone who is looking for someone who will work with you and provide you with exactly what you are looking for on your special day. Butterfly Photography did exactly that for us.

Martin and Rosaline are excellent photographers. They are also incredibly friendly, very helpful, great with people and have an excessive amount of patience.

We hired them for 7 hours on the day, passing up the opportunity to sit for an engagement session as we were without need of them, and spent about 2 to 3 hours of our day completely focused on taking photographs. I had provided them with a photo shoot list, prioritized into 3 levels, and they made sure they got every single shot I had asked for and then some. We initially had wanted to spend about an hour taking photos, just the bride and groom, but on the day we both decided while we were out getting photos after about 15 minutes that we had had enough and needed to just get back to our guests and some drinks. Rosaline and Martin were completely relaxed and easy going about changing plans and followed our lead entirely.

It took 2 weeks to get the online album, and we both were extremely happy with how the photos turned out. We have a good selection of photos to choose from to have printed, and we're very excited to send a few photos off to friends and family that they're sure to love as much as we do. The DVD of the remaining photos are in the mail, and I expect there to be about 4 times as many photos on the disk as are in the online album. All in all, the shots we've seen only reinforce our suspicions that the whole day was captured on film in a remarkably lovely way.

Before the day, Rosaline was incredibly informative and helpful during face to face meetings. The response time on emails was very good, as there never was more than a day or 2 between emails and replies. Rosaline made sure to bring albums of their previous work, and Martin and Rosaline spent some time talking with me before the wedding about styles and asking me to reference previous pictures of theirs for things that we were looking for on the day. They provided online links to their galleries as a reference as well, and were very good with dealing with me when I wasn't exactly sure about what kind of shots we would want. They took my preference of un-posed shots and went with it, creating some great moments and lovely pictures.

Everyone involved in the wedding - guests, family, other vendors - commented to me about how friendly and easy to work with Martin and Rosaline were. We could not have been happier with their services.
